Sony Mobile Sponsoring XDA:DevCon 2013
If there’s one thing that Sony Mobile has done over the past year to change its image, that’s been to support the independent Android developer community. From open-sourcing DASH to releasing an ALPHA build of Jelly Bean with the kernel source to contributing to AOSP projects, Sony has signaled that they are a company that embraces open source and (by extension) the community as a whole. If you haven’t already, you should really check out their Developer World site where you’ll find tutorials, source code, and all sorts of interesting announcements.
Due to their contributions, it comes as no shock that Sony Mobile is sponsoring XDA:DevCon 2013 at the “Elite Recognized Sponsor” level. What this means is they are committed to helping bring the highest level of content and participation possible. They’ll be sponsoring their own “supersession,” as well as hosting a booth for you to meet and greet some Sony engineers.
We can’t say enough how happy we are to have Sony Mobile join us on this adventure, and we look forward to bigger and better things to come. And to provide further incentive, register to attend using this link for exclusive savings.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
